You don't have to look washed up in a downpour. These items will help you thrive in the wettest weather. Courtney Colavita

1. TRENCH (pictured above)
The centerpiece of any precipitation-ready ensemble, a cropped trench coat is lightweight, waterproof, and still stylish after the showers have passed.

2. STADIUM COAT
The anorak you wore to college tailgate parties doesn't cut it for weekends around town. A khaki-green stadium coat with a contrasting red collar is substantial enough for a storm and just right for brunch with the in-laws. [Gucci ($1,525), gucci.com]

3. CARRYALL AND UMBRELLA
Cheap plastic umbrellas are for guys who show up to dinner parties with boxed wine. Invest in some wet-weather dignity, like a sturdy, wood-handled model. Store it in a carryall designed with an exterior umbrella pouch. [Bag ($1,795) by SPURR, spurr.tv. Umbrella (approximately $300) by Swaine Adeney Brigg, swaineadeney.co.uk]

4. SHOE PROTECTORS
Rubbers can save you from making a move you'll almost certainly regret, like running to the car in those wing tips you bought in London. Practical and unobtrusive, these slip-ons make a no-hassle custodian for all of your fine footwear. [Jack Spade ($45), jackspade.com]
